What is the vision and mission of Caldera High School?

People thrive when they feel connected and when they see purpose in the work they do. This guiding idea is at the heart of everything we do at Caldera. When we help learners find their purpose in a place where they feel they belong, we know that learning is enhanced. Relevant learning begins with a deep understanding of the content and a deep understanding of those we learn with.

As we prepare to help our students grow, support the families we serve, and empower our current and future staff, we will always lead with relationship building as the pathway to success.

We cannot wait to meet you!

What classes will be offered? What would a typical student schedule look like?

Linked below are sample Four-Year Plans. A four-year plan offers a snapshot of a student's coursework during each year of study. Students will complete their own four-year plan following forecasting this spring and will meet regularly with their counselor to update this plan during their time at Caldera High School.

In addition to four-year plans, we have linked course progressions by content area. Course offerings will be determined by enrollment and some modifications will be made as we move into the 2022-2023 and 2023-2024 school years.

Will you have athletics and activities

YES! Caldera High School will offer varsity OSAA activities similar to other Bend-La Pine area high schools. During the 2021-2022 school year, varsity team sports will compete at the JV level; individual varsity sports will compete at the varsity level.

Caldera will also house numerous school-based activities. This includes LEADERSHIP. We need student leaders to help us design and develop ways for all students to participate in at least one extra-curricular activity. We will also join with students this spring to help us plan transition events and activities for next August and September. More information coming soon.

Why is the Wolfpack your mascot?

Last year, we visited classes and met with student groups to gather input about our future mascot. Students submitted numerous ideas to our design team. As a group, we were drawn to mascots ideas that represent a community. Thus, the Wolfpack was born at Caldera High School. As a member of the Wolfpack, you are both part of the greater community and an individual with the talents and skills to help us thrive.
